Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picure and audio suddenly go away

Pic and audio suddenly go away, screen blacks out, audio goes away. Cannot make any adjustments, no menu or anything can be done. TV apparently will turn off and on but nothing shows or sounds.
Unplug and let sit for 30 minutes or so and it will turn on and everything seems to be working again, then, suddenly, no picture nor sound. Tried another input to TV with same result.

Since you have already tried a different source of signal, you can be sure that the TV's at fault.
The type of problem you're having is mostly caused by a failing or failed power supply. This may well be mounted on a separate board inside the housing. After removing all the cables attached including the AC cord, remove the rear housing and see if you can identify the power supply; this is not normally too hard, follow the AC input and the supply should be the first board to which it is connected.    
If it has an identifiable part number on the board, you can call LG to see if they have an exchange or replacement price that makes sense to you. Boards will often have multiple part numbers; if you see one that clearly could be on a bare board, that may not be the right one. Look for one on a sticker or obviously printed but not as a part of the etching process. There is often also 'revision' numbers along with the basic part number. Both of those should be used to get the correct version for your set.

There is double vision at times, then it goes away.


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking pic
*White looking pic
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking pic

Go into the menu and see if your closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Setting the closed captions to "OFF" should solve your problem.
